Thomas Joseph Cantrell (1827–1909) was born in Dublin in 1827. Once qualified as a medical practitioner, he became a principal assistant at Grattan & Co, a Belfast firm of chemists. Grattan & Co also manufactured soft drinks. Historians widely credit Dr. Cantrell as the first inventor of ‘ginger-ale’, proudly claiming the rights by embossing the slogan “The Original Makers of Ginger Ale” on its bottles. In 1868, TJ Cantrell merged with the soft drinks business of Henry Cochrane (1836 – 1904) of Dublin, establishing “Cantrell & Cochrane Limited”.
